    Voted "other" for the Clark who is so average and mundane he's socially invisible. He's not the confident and disarmingly charming professional, nor the clutz who trips over his own desk at the...

    I think the "how" of it is critical. Clark's "classic" behavior is to avoid taking political power and direct control of humanity. I think if Clark, even at his most benevolent, said "Y'know what,...

    This actually is the only comic site I visit. I figure all the "news" you get from CBR or newsarama or bleeding cool is either rumor (which I have little interest in) or official announcements from...

    Well, I can't comment too much on the modern Joker stuff, since I've avoided the character since Death of the Family. But yeah, I can see what you mean; that whole "I'm so crazy it's a superpower"...

    Oh Almerac is definitely one of the three most underused concepts in Super lore. The Zone, the 5th dimension, and Almerac rank at the top of my list with Almerac being the least developed and...

    Yeah our tastes seem pretty different. But that means you've had some insights I had never considered so I appreciate the fact you don't see things the same way I do.

    And TBWL being popular...

    Generally speaking, no I don't see Lois supporting Clark in such an effort.

    However, it depends on how Clark is trying to achieve his goal. Is he literally taking over the world as a benevolent...

    I agree with Laufeyson, the Batman Who Laughs is a interesting character/concept but DC over-used him to the point where I don't really want to see the guy again for at least 5-10 years.

    But...

    I agree. The idea of Maxima and Clark having a kid *can* create some solid drama and be done in a way that doesn't damage anyone's character. But it's not something I'd really *want* to see either. I...

    I've said before that it is not only acceptable to punch a nazi whenever you find one, but a civic duty you should perform with pride.

    I think I might want to extend that to anyone who talks smack...

    No, Clark would not take the news well at all. Neither would Lois.

    I feel like Jon would be excited about having an older sibling though.

    And with Conner....maybe you could pull a troupe from...

    Pretty much.

    I don't think the title or the character have been so damaged a rest is required. Ultimately, Ric was nothing more than a bad run and nothing more. You don't put a title on the shelf...

    I think the easiest way to make that retcon would be to say that when Maxima first showed up on earth chasing Clark, she seduced him into a one night stand. If memory serves she showed up before...

    And despite those things, the Titans still can't maintain publishing or steady sales, and at its best barely manages to equal typical Nightwing numbers.

    Titans is *not* the franchise to send Dick...

    You'd have a valid argument if the Titans were in a better position. They're not. The book doesn't tend to sell better than Nightwing and is far, far less consistent in its sales numbers. All the...

    That's my takeaway too. Seems to be a "right suit for the right job" situation.

    Now, don't get me wrong, the suit *does* look fairly generic in a "paramilitary 90's hero" kind of way and something...

    If all you wanted to do was screw around and entertain yourself then sure, you could do that and it'd probably be fine. If you didn't threaten the power dynamics and those in charge I doubt they'd...

    Anyone who's a telepath.

    Magic goes right out the window because "realism" and physics rules out anyone with physical powers. Flash? Runs right off the surface of the earth and bounces off the...

    I thought it was pretty decent.

    My biggest issue with New Order is that it's a story about Dick trapped in a moral dilemma where compromise *had* to be made and there were no good options. And I...
